with libyan government officials in the attack. white house official wrote, "secretary clinton called libyan president el-megarif on behalf of the president on the evening of september 11, 2012, to coordinate support to protect americans in libya and access to libyan territory." that angered graham. >> the president of the united states did not make any phone calls to any government official. and libya, the entire period of the attack. he called government officials on september 12, after everybody was dead. >> we would not have gotten answers but for pushing for this. frankly, the more answers we have gotten i think we have shown here that this was a national security failure. >> late today, president obama said chuck hagel is imminently qualified to be secretary of defense. the president says he deserves a vote and predicted eventually he will get confirmed. >> bret: mikes, thanks. we just got word from the pentagon that panetta is heading to california tonight, to monterrey. the ride is also getting bumpy for the president's choice as top spy master. the complication and confusion continu
a very dramatic reform of the department as the federal government came in and forced changes down the department's throat after several scandals. bratton latched on to the changes and made sure that the department actually bought into them. and in doing so really changed the story line of the lapd. and that said, this whole episode, while you would think nobody would want to touch dorn were a ten-foot pole we have been inundated with e-mails and calls from lapd cops and from the public that say the old lapd is still alive and well. even if that's not the case, and i don't think it is, the memories and the pain and the scars from that time are still very much on the surface. >> it often goes down to personal experiences with the police that are anecdotal, but of course they drive how you think about any life experience. they dominate your thinking. and of course the past is always with. thank you, joel rubin of "the l.a. time." clint van zandt is now with us. clint, thank you. i've been watching you on knbc as we monitor the situation. do we have clint? we don't have clint. >> yeah
with their small mindedness and small government proposals that they think that they can push through on the american people that i do not think are very popular. host: we have a different opinion from twitter. host: david wright's in on twitter and says -- host: dan is up next in california, republican. caller: hello. i would like to reiterate what was just said. i am a retired federal employees. executive orders used to come few and far between. this president is misusing them to an extreme degree. as the lady put it a little bit ago, executive orders are not meant for executive fiat of anything the president dreams. he is going to ruin the balance of power in this country if he keeps it up. i think he should be impeached for what he has done. host: what you think of the callers who have spoken up and said that congress is not moving and someone has to get something done? caller: that may be the case, but will we do is get congress moving by building a fire under them by making phone calls to them. this government is not set up to be in a balance. when the president tries to make ex

on wall street all the way to a trial. >> ooh, this ought to be good. please proceed, government regulators. >> we've actually had a fairly -- a fair number of consent orders. we do not have to bring people to trial or -- >> well, i appreciate you say you don't have to bring them to trial. my question is when did you bring them to trial? >> we have not had to do it as a practical matter to achieve our supervisory goals. >> and senator warren wasn't done making her point. >> we look at the distinction between what we could get if we go the trial and what we could get if we don't. >> i appreciate that that's what everybody does. so the question i'm really asking is can you identify when you last took the wall street banks to trial? >> um, i will have to get back to you with the specific information. >> i think they all need water on that panel. what do you think? the government has acted cowardly when it comes to the big banks, no doubt about it. deals are cut and civil cases get settled out of court. the banks don't have to change any of their behavior. you and i get stuck, or cou
finally acknowledgedly last week that the president did not make a call to the libyan government on that night when four americans died in benghazi. republicans wanted to know why. i want to ask you you were the deputy national security adviser. it's my understanding, we learned last week, that want president got a briefing early on the afternoon and seemed to have no more participation in anything. we know he didn't talk to the secretary of defense or didn't talk to the c.i.a. chief after that. what was the president dag that night? >> boy i just-- i don't remember it that way bob. and in fact letter we sent to capitol hill earlier this week said that secretary of state clinton called the libyan-- >> schieffer: we know that. >>eeo behalf of the president and we carried out a very robust reaction to the situation on behalf of the-- >> schieffer: were you aware of what was happening? >> throughout the night. not only were we briefing him we were convene the united states government, the deputy's committee and the national security council and i will we worked it throughout the nig
to the average person? why does a huge government debt impact businesses? >> at the end of the day, the issue is there's so much debt on the government's balance sheet that we have to cut back on spending as well as stimulus, and when you think about the dollars injected into the system, some of that will be cut back as well. that's the concern in terms of it doesn't have a question mark on the consumer and put a question mark on how much investment is put forth. >> they are already connecting the dots saying somebody has to pay for a someday, me or my customer. interesting that 68% of u.s. ceos say building a skilled work force should be the government's top prior pickups. what is the government going to do about it? >> they don't see the long term skill set creation to ensure stainability, and literacy or lack thereof, the big k-12 grades are the challenge. how much do i have to continue to invest to supplement what basic education and schools system, should be doing today? >> they are looking at what they have to do to fix the problem themselves? >> yeah, companies think, listen, i'm think
matthews said rubio said government is not the answer, but talked about medicare for his mother and a student loan he received that perhaps allow him to be the senator that he is today. what do you make of the conflict there? >> i think that senator rubioey performance is fine. i am not hung up on the water incident. >> the issue of the role of government. >> substantively the short coming to answer the question is he didn't do anything in that speech to expand the tent. the issue that you raise about the role of government is an example of where there koochb compromise, but it hasn't been forth comprehending. he had a good presentation, but the same set of remarks with a different and perhaps more appealing face delivering them. >> as you are talking about the substance, we are talking about the water. it was over 90,000 tweets. his issue about the role of government and we talked about this a lot. there is not just a mote, but there is maybe the grand canyon between the two parties over the role of government. these are ideological differences that will not be solved. >> it re
laid out tonight. the choice isn't just between big government or big business. >> oh, so unsmooth and awkward. rubio did speak out this morning on "good morning america" and said "i needed water" what was i going to do? >> we're back after the break. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. stop looking at car interiors. get inspired by other stuff. yep. yep. ok. sure. why not? woah. touchscreens. put that in your dash. now, luxury stuff. make your seats like that. that thing has wifi, why doesn't your car? you can't do that. ignore that guy. give it wifi. yes! make it fit 5 people. no, 5 actual sized people. give them leg room, good.
and don't expect governments to be forth coming about that. >> let me ask you briefly as the u.n. goes back into session to look at sanctions, what more can be done at this point? >> very little on an international scale. in 2009 they came out with some very good sanctions, but it didn't really influence the north koreans' actions. i don't think there's any marginal addition to the sanctions that are in place. they're going to call on the north koreans to blink, if you will. very little from an international point of view. necessary but won't produce an outcome. >> brown: ambassador jack pritchard and james acton, thank you both very much. >> thank you. >> woodruff: we have more about today's nuclear test on our web site, including a dispatch on reaction in seoul, south korea, from our partner global post, plus links to previous newshour stories on north korea. and still to come on the newshour, white house spokesman jay carney; palm oil production in malaysia; osama bin laden's killer; plus, shields and brooks. but first, the other news of the day. here's hari sreenivasan. >> sreeniva
. >> senator marco rubio, delivering a combative republican response. >> no government isn't going to help you get ahead. it's going to hold you back. more government isn't going to create opportunities. it's going to limit them. mr. president, i don't oppose your plan because i want to protect the rich. i oppose your plan because i want to protect my neighbors. >> but it was that unscripted lunge for water that's lighting up social media. the senator made light of the moment by tweeting a picture of the water bottle and cracking jokes on the morning talk shows. >> i needed water. what am i going to do, you know? it happens. god has a funny way of reminding us we're human. >>> good day. i'm andrea mitchell. live in washington. for the daily fix, chis and chuck todd, chief political correspondent and host of "the daily rundown." two speeches, two different approaches. chuck todd, we see the president on the road today. he'll be on the road the rest of the week. did he muddy up or cover up his middle class message, economic message with that incredible and emotional appeal at the end? >> or woul
number of people out there are circling the wagons. they see the government coming to collect their guns, and they're preparing for fight. the only thingy figure is that movement, crude as it may be to throw these two issues together toward personal freedom, toward individual autonomy is growing, profoundly on the right as well as the left. people want to make their own decisions. they do. and it may be dangerous for society as a whole to allow this when it comes to gun buying, but there row visit. one bet you can make on america we are still a cowboy country. we like to get around in our own cars, live in our separate houses, read whatever, see whatever, pretty much do whatever. and the difference here is doing harm to others. two people getting married doesn't hurt someone else's marriage, nor does it reduce its reverence or love. having a gun in the wrong hands, freedom for that person can mean death for lots of others. and that is where the desire for freedom jumps the tracks. that's where our cowboy urge need wyatt earp to come in and clean up dodge city. and that's "hardball" for n
a smarter government, not a smaller government. it was the economy that dominated the speech including a call to elevate the middle class. >> it is our generation's task to reignite the true engine of america's economic growth. a rising, thriving middle class and that's why we need to build new ladders of opportunity into the middle class for all those willing to climb them. a growing economy that greats middle class jobs, that must be the north star that guides our efforts. [ applause ] >> the president called on congress to raise the minimum wage and put a billion dollars into manufacturing institutes. he's announced he's creating a bipartisan commission to look into voting problems. and he will bring 34,000 troops in afghanistan home as well as press for universal preschool. he did not mention gun control until the very emotional end when he demanded a vote on gun control. >> gabrielle giffords deserves a vote. the families of newtown deserve a vote. the families of aurora deserve a vote. the families of oak creek and tucson and blacksburg and the countless other communities ripped
presidency as his path to improve the economy. he claimed that the new government spending would not add to the alarming deficit that we already have. here is some of last night. >> nothing i'm proposing tonight should increase our deficit by a single dime. it is not a bigger government we need but a smarter government that sets priorities and invests in broad based growth. [applause] martha: let's bring in stuart varney. stuart, what the president is proposing is it really paid for? it is hard to imagine how that could be. >> well the president is proposing a big increase in government spending. that's how he thinks we're going to get growth in the economy. he is basically saying that it is the private sector that has got to pay for it. there is a long list of items, martha. number one, he wants universal preschool. not a word how that would be paid for. that is a big new entitlement program. number two, $50 billion of road and bridge building. three, one billion dollars spent on 15 manufacturing hubs where up-and-coming manufacturing technology would be encouraged. a billion dollars th
